RantsOutload on the state of the two-party system

Not since the downfall of the Whig Party in the 19th century has there been more turmoil in the major parties. Both are heading in strange directions. Infighting happens daily and in a very public manner. There seems to be no sanity left in either major party.

@RantsOutloud, the personality behind the Adrian Slade Show, made a comment that found its way into visual perpetuity through social media.

This is Whig Party implosion 2.0… only happening to both parties for the same reasons. They both are clinging to control. One party has given into its new base and shoved out its moderates and the other is purging its core.

Ben Shapiro calls out the utter hypocrisy of the U.N. for not condemning Hamas

There are two forms of terrorism in the eyes of the United Nations. There’s terrorism that should be condemned and terrorism perpetrated against the nation of Israel. The former is universally condemned. The latter has a mitigating circumstances that makes it impossible for them to condemn terrorists or acts of violence. That mitigating circumstance is the fact that it’s being committed against Israel.

Apparently, that makes terrorism palatable to a majority in the United Nations. As conservative commentator Ben Shapiro puts it, Israel is a “disfavored” member of the international community.

“Hamas isn’t hiding the ball. It is evil. It celebrates evil. It pays terrorists to commit acts of evil. But the international community isn’t hiding the ball either when its members refuse to condemn terrorism as terrorism when it is directed against disfavored members of the international community.”

Read the whole article by Shapiro on DailyWire:

The ‘International Community’ Isn’t A Community. It’s A Rogue’s Gallery.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/39304/international-community-isnt-community-its-rogues-ben-shapiroTake, for example, the United Nations’ recent decision not to condemn the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. This week, the U.N. General Assembly voted on a resolution condemning the group for “repeatedly firing rockets into Israel and for inciting violence, thereby putting civilians at risk,” as well as for using assets to construct “tunnels to infiltrate Israel and equipment to launch rockets into civilian areas.” The U.N., which requires a two-thirds vote to pass a General Assembly resolution, voted down the resolution — 87 nations in favor, 58 against, 32 abstaining. All in all, that means that more nations voted against ratifying the resolution — 90 — than in favor of it.

As Israel destroys Hezbollah's terror tunnels, Benjamin Netanyahu issues a warning

Hezbollah was caught red-handed building tunnels from Lebanon to Israel for the sole purpose of transporting soldiers, terrorists, and weapons across the border for future attacks on Israel. This isn’t disputed, but there still seems to be a false sense of outrage towards Israel for destroying them.

There’s no way to tell how Hezbollah expected Israel to react, but they have grown increasingly threatening as the fruits of their labors are being systematically demolished. Some fear retaliation for Israel’s efforts to protect itself. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it crystal clear any actions taken against the demolition process will be met by extreme force.

“If Hezbollah makes the mistake, and decides, in any way, to attack us or to oppose our operation, they will be hit with unimaginable blows.”

Thomas Sowell on #FakeNews

Thomas Sowell on #FakeNews

One of the great conservative thinkers of our time (or any time for that matter) is Thomas Sowell. He has been dishing out dimes of wisdom for decades, and though he is getting on in years he is still quite capable of breaking down the current status of geopolitics, economics, and cultural differences.

In other words, he’s the left’s greatest nightmare.

On the topic of fake news, which is near and dear to our hearts as a news outlet opposed to the machinations of mainstream media, Sowell breaks it down into a few simple choices. Either people in the media do their jobs or announce that they’ve stopped doing their jobs, in which case it’s up to the people to be discerning.

“If people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly.”
